Home School Association Mission Statement

St. Rose of Lima Academy relies upon the volunteer efforts of parents. Volunteering for Academy activities is part of every parent’s commitment. Parent volunteers are organized through the parent’s association, which is called the Home School Association, or H.S.A. The H.S.A. fundraises to provide supplemental programs for the students and faculty and to assist with the Academy budget. The H.S.A. organizes those fundraisers and supplemental programs, as well as social events for the Academy community. The H.S.A. Executive Board is responsible for overseeing all parent volunteer programs and committees and works with the Principal to achieve both its fundraising goals, community outreach and policy guidelines as they relate to extra-curricular activities. St. Rose of Lima Academy and the St. Rose of Lima H.S.A. strongly believe that involved parents are essential and set the tone of warmth and respect for Catholic values and academic growth that prevails at St. Rose.

2022–2023 Mandatory Volunteer Signup

SRLA Volunteer Signup

Please add your name to our mandatory HSA signup, which each family agreed to participate in when they registered at SRLA. This signup breaks down the different volunteer opportunities at SRLA so parents can choose where they prefer to participate, or what works best with their schedule.

Please sign up (each parent/guardian) for whichever fundraising or volunteering event you'd like to be involved in for the 2022-23 school year. It's that simple! And, don't worry, all events are supported by the HSA so we will be there every step of the way!

Keep in mind, there will be additional events to support that come up throughout the year: 8th grade fundraising, class events, Christmas gift giving, Wish Upon a Star, just to name a few. This signup is simply a baseline for volunteering.

Please be sure to pick a slot by November 1, 2022. Volunteer hours will be assessed at the end of the year and fees will be assessed at that time. If you would like to opt out for the year, a $350 fee will be charged to your Blackbaud account.

Please note: Class Parents & Advisory Board members are not required to sign up (but please do, if you'd like!).

Already volunteering for something you don't see here, or have other questions? Just email Jess or Aveen, HSA Board Presidents at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
